Things are getting a little out of hand at Strategic Profits this week…
Tempers are flaring. Veins are popping. Normal conversations are turning into shouting matches.
I swear, you’d think this was the WWE instead of a marketing business (was that a chair that just went flying over my head?).
Seriously though, we did have a major rift in the office this week. And here’s what’s happened…
We were THIS close to releasing the new report. All the graphics were done, the formatting finished, and it looked fantastic.
The only thing left to do was cut it down to a more manageable size (if you recall, my first draft came in at over 300 pages). So I got the team together and the editors and asked them one question:
“What goes and what stays?”
We started poring through the report, line by line, and discussing how and where to trim it down.
And that’s where the trouble started.
Everyone had a different opinion. Some wanted certain sections left in, while others felt that they only hindered the main message. Still the editors thought most–if not all–of the content should be left as is.
And as we went on, it was blatantly apparent that nobody wanted to give in. Discussions became more and more heated. The fur started to fly. I even had to separate a couple of team members before they came to blows.
It was ugly. And I mean UGLY.
Like, why not put out all 300 pages right? That’s what some want because they felt it was so good.
I will explain why not soon.
Then, like a ray of sunshine through the dark clouds, a single voice spoke up:
“Why don’t we let our readers decide?”
It was Kristen, one of our newest (and quietest) employees at Strategic Profits.
Kristen is the voice you hear when you call our offices. She hadn’t said two words throughout the entire debacle until just now. But when she did, they were pure GOLD.
We instantly stopped arguing, looked shamefully at each other, and collectively thought the same thing:
So long story short, we’re putting the editing job into your hands. We want to know what YOU want to know. And here’s how it works.
Clicking on that link above (or email to BlogReply (AT) Strategicprofits.com ) within the next couple days and it will send us an email where you can answer 3 simple questions:
- How long have you had an online business?
- Are you making the kind of money and achieving the level of success and freedom you thought you would be by now?
- Why or why not?
That’s it. Once we get your answers tallied, we’ll dive back into the report and tailor it to your particular wants, needs, and desires.
I assure you that all your questions, concerns, and stumbling blocks will be addressed in your report–BUT you have to tell us what they are first.
So please go here now and do exactly that. It will only take a moment.
I’ll try to hold the fort until you do. Anybody got a taser I can borrow?
To Higher Profits,
P.S. As if our in-office Battle Royal wasn’t enough, now we’ve got an even more serious situation brewing here in South Florida…
Hanna, Ike, and Josephine may sound like a 60’s folk singing group. But they’re actually 3 deadly tropical storms that are barreling through the Atlantic on a beeline towards our Delray Beach office.
So needless to say, we’ll be keeping one eye on your answer submissions and the other glued to the Weather Channel. Because when these things make landfall, they can wreak SERIOUS havoc.
Please keep us in your prayers…
